While Google recently updated the Favicon that appears in the address bar, Firefox users are stuck with the old icon for the search box. The Mozilla Links weblog details how to update the icon by replacing a file inside the Firefox installation directory. Just browse to your Firefox installation directory (
%PROGRAMFILES%\Mozilla Firefox\searchplugins for most Windows users) and replace the google.xml file with the downloadable one provided.If replacing files manually isn't your game, you can also update your search engine plugin by removing the current one and re-adding it through the Mycroft search engines list. Firefox 3.1 beta users might have to use this method. The new Google icon is, well, colorful. What's your take, like it or hate it?
